Chris: Ryan Adams (Another Album of the Week)

I'm bookending this week with another selection from Ryan Adams. Chris is the third of a trilogy of albums that were originally due to come out in 2019. Wednesdays and Big Colors, the first two chapters, set a tone of dark Americana that is lost due to love, life, and a world that doesn't exist anymore. 

Chris is a heartfelt tribute to a close friend of Adams who is no longer with us. It has the same late 70s/early 80s radio sound that all of his most recent albums share. It's a common thread of nostalgia for a place lost in the ashes of time and that's honestly pretty fucking sad.

Here is the title track...
